A group of local companies have jointly purchased Offshore Payroll Limited (OP). OP is a payroll service and software business that specialises in processing for jurisdictions that have unique tax and social rules. The new owners include; recruitment specialists Rowlands, financial strategists Purpose and technology experts Vertix. Together, the group plans to invest in OP’s team and technology to innovate and develop the existing services.
Managing Director of Rowlands, Jeralie Pallot, commented:
'We believe that this business is an excellent fit for Rowlands and will enable us to provide new, innovative solutions for our clients as OP evolves. I am particularly excited about the potential that OP has to offer deeper insights for employers and efficiencies gained through integration with accounting systems. We believe that with some investment, this is an incredibly useful tool that we will be able to provide to you.'
Managing Director of Purpose, Luke Smith added:
'My focus when supporting the growth of OP will be to consider innovative ways to use the technology to understand the value of human resources. I believe that we can develop OP's existing platform to create new ways to understand profitability, which in turn will help businesses to be more intelligent in their decision-making.’
Director of Vertix, Ross Huelin concluded:
‘I am excited to be part of a team that is committed to building on OP’s existing technology in creative and original ways. We are passionate about making complex processes simple, and where possible, automatic, to increase business efficiency and agility. I believe that the development work we undertake will add huge value to existing OP clients, but also open up the technology to have widely useful benefits for global organisations.’
Over the coming months, OP will begin growing its team and rolling out improvements for existing clients, before embarking on a programme of development.
